The authors present a Fabry-Ṕrot ́talon using an electro-optic (EO) polymer material as the nonlinear medium. The two electrodes used to apply voltage across the EO polymer include an indium tin oxide electrode outside the ́talon cavity and a low-absorption indium oxide electrode inside the ́talon cavity. High finesse (∼234) and a low insertion loss (∼4 dB) have been obtained. An isolation ratio of 10 dB and ∼10% modulation depth at 200 kHz with 5 V applied voltage have been achieved. These results indicate that EO polymer ́talons are promising as spatial light modulators for information technology.
